UPDATE: Both dogs have safely arrived at Bound 4 the Pound. Formerly known as "Nobody's Dog" is now named Ella. Her veterinary examination finds her extremely emaciated, and heart worm positive. She is being fostered, and will now be pampered and fed until she is healthy enough to be spayed and treated for heart worms.
The other brindle pooch is now named Noel and is also emaciated and heart worm positive. Her foster home will be following the same protocol.
There will be more updates in the future.
Today will be a great day for an emaciated bulldog mix affectionately named "Nobody's Dog,"whose life had been one of abandonment and fear in the east end of Houston. Sometimes good things keep coming however, and that's what happened on Tuesday as Gina, an animal advocate spent over a month trying to catch the elusive dog.
"Nobody's Dog" and her emaciated little bonded friend, who advocates feared would not survive, are now happily on their way to Beaumont's Bound 4 the Pound.
The story began when "Nobody's Dog" had been spotted in a heavily wooded area. At first Gina thought the dog had disappeared back into the woods to return home, but that was not to be the case. Just a few days ago, the wooded lot had been cleared, and the dog had been reported to have been tied to a tree with a cable and rope.
Never underestimate the power and influence of social media when it comes to the compassion of animal advocates. After 7,700 Facebook shares for the dog, hundreds of emails going everywhere with questions and information, and 112 private Facebook messages, "Nobody's Dog" has been captured and her new life looks promising.
With hints from Eldad Hagar of Hope for Paws, and Orlando of Villalobos Rescue, Gina was equipped with an arsenal of ideas and treats to trap the dog. In the end, an army of volunteers and advocates and the wonders of some Oscar Meyer weenies, "Nobody's Dog" and her favorite little brindle canine friend will forever by safe.
